I have just taken my shibori obsession to a whole new level, friends. I have managed to incorporate my favorite tie-dying technique onto Easter eggs. Yes, you heard me right….Easter Eggs!!!  I am going to show you how to DIY shibori  eggs.

You see, my son absolutely loves to dye eggs and as soon as he caught a glimpse of the kits in the store, he begged for Easter eggs. So, I obliged (even though I knew they would be rotten by the time Easter arrived). Just his luck, I had been feeling major mom guilt that day.

When I noticed the magic crayon that the dye kit came with, a light bulb went on inside this crazy head of mine.  I thought I would try to draw shibori inspired patterns on the eggs, and then place them in blue dye.

So,  that is exactly what I decided to do. After boiling the eggs and allowing them to cool, I gazed around my home…looking at shibori patterns for inspiration.

Before placing the eggs in the blue dye, with my magic crayon , I drew shibori-esque patterns on my eggs. Because the crayon is clear, you cannot preview what you are drawing…hence why some of the patterns look half-assed.

It was kind of like drawing blind-folded.

Once you draw the pattern on your egg, place it in the dye for about 5 to 10 minutes.

When you pull your egg out of the dye, you will see your pattern….like magic!

With each egg I did, I got a little better. But as I mentioned, you really cannot see what you are drawing.

And no, they are not perfect by any means, but I had a great time with my little one.

Wishing all of you a happy Easter!

Now get out there and design some good vibes.
